Every December, I look forward to seeing what Pantone would declare would be the next color of the year. This year, they made history as they created their own hue for the Color of The Year for 2022. The color is Very Peri.

Pantone describes the color to be “a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet-red undertone.”

It’s giving very much blue-ish, purple to me. I can’t wait to see how people play around with this color in the New Year, whether it be with their hair, nails, or fashion pieces.

In an official statement, Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute said, “As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication and as a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red-violet-infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lie before us.”
